A probation violation occurs when a judge orders your probation revoked. If this occurs, you may be required to serve the remaining amount of time from your original sentence, or if the probation violation consisted of committing another crime, you could face new charges. In either event, probation violation charges are complex and severe, and what might have been a short-term problem can easily become a life-changing event. Do not allow your life to be destroyed because you misunderstood or did not take a probation violation seriously.
